Abstract

The internal medicine residents from our training program rarely participated in scholarly activity prior to 1994. In an attempt to increase the quality and quantity of resident research, we initiated a research program that included: (1) a mandatory research project, (2) 2 months of dedicated research time, (3) appointment of a research director, (4) lectures on the critical appraisal of medical literature and research design, (5) technical support, (6) faculty mentoring, (7) a research meeting and competition involving five residency programs, and (8) military achievement awards. From 1994 to 1999, our house staff has had 134 research presentations and 21 manuscripts accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Ninety percent of our residents presented at least one project at a scientific meeting by completion of their training between 1996 and 1999. Resident scholarly activity is significantly enhanced by a structured research program, an opportunity to present at a scientific meeting, and award recognition.
